Old Manor Farmhouse is a fine Grade II listed 17th century wool merchant's manor house with its 17th century tithe barn, quietly situated in woodland and open farmland, not far from the National Trust's Blickling and Felbrigg estates and the private stately homes of Mannington and Wolterton.
The farmhouse had fallen into derelict condition before being rescued in 1989
and sympathetically restored, winning the
Graham Allen Award for Conservation
The barn then began its journey of restoration endeavouring to keep its
vernacular past at the forefront at all times, creating a shell within which
guest can live luxuriously while still appreciating the history and
craftsmanship of this Grade II listed 17th century Norfolk threshing barn.
